Signing him as a reclamation project and slotting him as a top 6 with no backup plan is stupid and short sighted. He hasn't played in 2 years. You'd think we'd have learnt something from Markov.
Crosby in last 2 yrs played 63 games....Lats played 28
Pens play Crosby 4th line long?....Either your head is ready or it is not .
Some might argue 4th line is more dangerous ,you got the other teams bangers and goons to contend with.
